Lace and Buttons and Yarn, Oh My!
I have a question....
Have any of you ever run out and bought a card for someone even though you have a ton of cardstock and paper in your stash?
Well, I have.
Then one day my husband made a little comment about it. He was right.
I get too busy doing other things and don't get the "fun" things done, like making a card. So I promised myself that I would make all the cards this year. I just about failed...just about....but I did it! The card needs to be at it's destination in 4 days and it just might make it! Lol...
So here it is. In fact, I totally used another card as my inspiration for making this one, even though it looks quite different.
I love the many uses for the "jar" stamp. Here's just one way to use it.
I used Brazilian embroidery thread instead of yarn or ribbon over the lace.
More embroidery thread over the lace on the jar and some buttons for inside.
I've been working on lots of crochet projects as well. Here's a couple of my latest projects.
Crocodile stitch booties. The pattern can be bought from Bonita Patterns.
I love this little Owl Hat! This one is size 6 - 12 months. So cute!
Unfortunately the photo is a little overexposed.

Well, that's all I have to share today. I post almost daily on my Beyond the Fringe FB page and often on Pinterest, if you'd like to follow me there.
